Temps have dropped.  High today 21 with a low of 6 tonight.  This will continue until Saturday night when the night time low will be 15.  Cloudy to partly cloudy. SNOW potential is moving all over the place. So stay tuned

Varying conditions.  Woods trails have plenty SNOW cover & are good. That’s north, east & west.  Trails along north sides of roads have burn through from the sunshine. Finally it’s cloudy. Trails along south sides of roads are in much better shape.  Roads may have ice but most are pretty bare.  The in town trails are in pretty good shape covered with crystal SNOW.  Swamps are tight but rough.  With the temps drop trails will be icy so slow down. Riding either today or Thursday afternoon & will have a better report on conditions.

Catfish & Eagle Lake trails are marked.  Stay by the orange reflective barrels.  Remember not all lakes are safe.  No markers means probably not safe

There is a 55mph nighttime speed limit.

THINK COLD!  KEEP DOIN’ THE SNOW DANCE!!!

Snowmobiling Information

Eagle River - Snow EaglesEagle River has long held the distinction of SNOWMOBILE CAPITAL OF THE WORLD, and it’s a matter of pride that causes local clubs and businesses to work so diligently to maintain that title. Snowmobile fever becomes a way of life in our Eagle River winters, and the talk often turns to “picks”, “carbides” and performance. In fact, these snow machines seem to outnumber cars during the winter months.

Over 500 MILES OF GROOMED TRAILS connect the communities of the area, including access to major county and state routes. Trails wind throughout the area’s scenic forests, but frequently pass close to service businesses which can provide you with fuel and sustenance, shelter and refreshment. If you don’t have your own snowmobile, several dealerships will be happy to provide you with equipment during your visit.
